    With the direction of Chris Green I've been trying
to track down a 'bug' in flow-portscan alert-mode all.
 While in alert mode all, it seems the alert_flag
variable is never being reset after the first alert.  

After some debugging any value set in the function
flowps_reset_alert_flags in flowps.c on the variable
alert_flags does not stay set.  I have tried setting 

alert_flag = & sep->alert_flags (via Chris)

and passing it by reference to no avail.  Is anyone
using alert-mode all, and if so do you see similar
